TUROA , Reo : Searching for whakapapa.
My name is Karen and I reside in Australia. I am looking for Turoa whanau on my dads side, Waikato - Maniapoto, who can provide me with a copy of our whakapapa. A whanau reunion was held in the year 2002, which I did not attend but requests for copies are unheeded. Please, any help would be much appreciated.
Kia Ora Wyllie and nzpitch,
I am also a descendent of Te Peehi Turoa! I come from Tukapua Turoa also known as Turahui. I would love to get in contact with either of you as there is a bit o confusion with the whakapapa i have and other whakapapa i've seen. I also have a photo of Te Pehi Turoa.
Hope to hear from one of you soon.

Kia ora koutou,
My name is Justine Paranihi. My grandfather on my mothers side was Te Kapeiti (aka Cappy) Tyson (Tahana Turoa). As far as I can remember his father or grandfather was Te Peehi Turoa. I am interested in finding out more about this whakapapa line and correcting any mistakes I may have. I know we can trace back to Pungarehu and Parikino from this line. Any more info will be appreciated.
My name is Richard Makea Goodwin. My Mother Tiaki Pare Turoa is a short story writer for Huia Publishers & Learning Media School Journals.
Her father was Atihaunuiapaparangi Rumatiki Wiari Topia Turoa (Jack Turoa) who was at Himatangi / Paranui Marae / Urupa. Related to Taimoana Turoa of Hauraki now buried at Karioi. My uncle Moetatua Pamariki Mitchell Turoa has been on the Tira hoe waka for the past 3-4 years. I live in Poneke 04 3838450, 0272849637
Kia Ora Koutou
No Te Awa O Whanganui Ahau
I am just looking for whanau memebers 🙂 I am a Tyson. My Koro is Gus (Tirou) his Dad was Tahana Turoa who's brothers were Te Peehi Pakaro and Topia Turoa. They were all chiefs of the awa. Tahanas wife was Tape Pineaha. And on my nans side I am a Maaka/Blackburn she was from Kauangaroa and Huruharama Marae.. 🙂
Kia Ora My name is Ella Anita Turoa and i am trying to find any information about my whanau as i have no idea what so ever i know that my koros name was Charles Turoa and my nannys name was Mare Peters but both passed away when i was young as I know that i have a great grandmother Nga Huia who i reaaalllllllllllly want to find out more about any photos and links to any information would be cool as so any whanau out there that can help me out PLEASE DO !!!!!!!
I would also be really interested in any info on our whakapapa. I am also a descendent of Tahana Turoa and Tape Pineaha. My Koro is Te Kapeiti Tahana-Turoa (who is the brother of Gus (Tirou) mentioned by one of the cuzzies above!). Am I right in thinking that my grt grandfather Tahana Turoa's fathers name was also Tahana Turoa who was the son or brother of Te Peehi Turoa!?!?! This is where I am confused and some clarification would be great!
I was told that i am desendent of Rangiapohia Pihopa Turoa but as of yet i am confused on how he is related to Peehi Turoa and i need some clarification if any body can help it would be very much appreciated. I too am also researching the Turoa whanau name as my Koro is a Pihopa from Raetihi.
